    Q
    Will Demand CS on the outside of the house work for cluster flies?
    How do I get rid of/prevent cluster flies (hundreds) They do die......but "after" they are in the house.
    A

    Demand CS is not a contact kill so once a fly contacts a treated area it could still get inside before it succombs to the insecticide, but that does mean that it is working.  If the cluster flies have already made their way indoors they will be harder to control because they usually hide in a wall void or other inaccessible area and are only visible when the house warms up. If the cluster flies are in an attic or drop ceiling or other dark area, a fly light would do a great job controlling the population. Using small fly lights such as the FlyWeb Fly Light in the house would also help to catch the flies. Spray Talstar directly on baseboards, window frames, door frames, and places where utilities (pipes, wires, cables) enter in to the building and any other crack, crevice or gap where insects can enter.  We also have a great guide here on "How to Get Rid of Cluster Flies" that might help.

    Does Demand CS kill mold? we are facing a mold issue in guest's room and Pest control company used Demand CS to spray all rooms, just wanted to know if this chemical kill mold?
    A

    No, Demand CS is not labeled to kill mold. It is only an insecticide.

    The only mold remediation product we sell is Boracare with Mold-Care, which can be used on raw structural wood for mold remediation and prevention.

    Q
    Is Demand CS effective on brown recluse spiders?
    A

    Demand CS would be a great choice for brown recluse spider control as well as general insect control. Brown Recluse spiders are very scary to have in your house, but they are no harder to get rid of than any other spider. The hardest part of getting rid of the brown recluse is finding them since they like to remain hidden. Demand CS would be a great choice for indoor and outdoor spider control. Spraying Demand CS will also help to get rid of the other insects (silverfish, sow bugs aka rollie pollies and millipedes) that spiders feed on and that will help to stop new spiders from moving inside. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure.

    Q
    What is the shelf life of a gallon of Demand CS working solution?
    Is it okay to make up a gallon to have on hand when needed, or does it not last long in solution?
    A

    You should use diluted solution of Demand CS or other insecticide concentrates as soon as possible and within 24 hours. After this time, the active ingredient breaks down quickly in solution. Shelf life of the concentrate is 3-5 years when stored in a temperate environment out of direct sunlight.

    Q
    I have Demand CS, how much should I use to kill the tiny black jumping spiders?
    I have used this spray already a few weeks ago, yet I still see the tiny jumping spiders crawling on areas where I sprayed. The spray definitely works on regular house spiders. What should I do?
    A
    Demand CS is a great choice for spider control, but it will take some time for death to occur. For clean out or severe infestions of spiders, including those black jumping spiders, you would want to mix 0.8 fluid oz (24 mL) of Demand CS per gallon of water. Be sure to spray the outside perimeter of your home, spraying 2 to 3 feet up the side of the house and 2-3 feet out on the ground. Also make sure to spray all of your baseboards, any cracks or crevices, window frames and door frames both interior and exterior, or any other place where spiders could gain entry into your home.

    Can Demand Cs be used outside in Cold weather?
    During what type of temperatures should I not use Demand CS outside around the perimeter of the home.
    A
    As long as it is not freezing outside you can safely use Demand CS outdoors. Since the product is water based trying apply it in below freezing temperatures would not yield positive results.

    Q
    Does Demand CS NOT work for yellow jackets?
    I'm wondering whether this is the wrong pesticide, or if the bottle I have is expired. Been spraying the stuff into place where many, many yellow jackets are entering and exiting (I think they must have a nest inside a pipe on the side of our house), as well as spraying directly on the insects, and it has zero effect. Scores of healthy yellow jackets before, during, and after spraying! I've never seen an insecticide sprayed directly on insects that didn't seem to affect them at all. Bewildered. Any suggestions?
    A

    Demand CS should kill Yellow Jackets after they come in contact with it, however it is not specifically labeled for them. This would not be our number one recommendation for Yellow Jackets because it can take some time to kill them. Please check out our article "How to Get Rid of Yellow Jackets". If you can get to the openings where the yellow jackets are coming in and out from, we highly recommend applying a dust like Tempo 1% Dust and when the yellow jacket comes in contact with it, the dust will transfer from yellow jacket to yellow jacket and kill off the entire nest.

    Q
    Using Demand CS For Stink Bugs
    I used D-fense SC (Active Ingredient : 4.75% Deltamethrin) but it did not get rid of my Stink Bugs in the house. So I have 3 questions. #1 Can I use Demand CS right now even though I sprayed the D-fense SC? $2 What areas do I need to spray Demand CS? Is spraying the window frames, house brick walls, and foundation good enough? #3 Lastly is Demand SC safe on aluminum window clad and composite frames?
    A
    Yes, you can use Demand SC even though you have already sprayed, although you would want to wait 7 days between treatments. Stink Bugs will try to emerge in the spring and common places that people find stinks bugs are in the window sills and this is a great place to treat along with the baseboards, back behind and underneath appliances, in attics, and where pipes enter the the wall. Demand SC is safe on aluminum and composite frames and will not harm any surface that is tolerable to water.

    Q
    How to get do I rid of caterpillars invading my house.
    I've already sprayed a chemical from Home Depot around my house a couple of months ago and now they are back.
    A
    You can use a product like Demand CS around the perimeter of the home and inside as well.   We have a great video here for General Spray Application to show you where to spray.  Demand CS should be applied once a month outside and once every 90 days inside.  It will not provide an instant knockdown but will instead continue to kill after it has dried.

    Q
    How can I stop Demand CS from staining the wood floors?
    I spay demand sc and it stains the wood floor and base boards. It can then be wiped off but is a pain too do. I used pest tabs in the past and did not have this problem. What should I do to eliminate the stains?
    A

    If Demand CS is leaving a visible residue, then we would recommend to use a lower dilution rate (0.2-0.4 oz. per gallon of water). Also, be sure you are only spraying as a spot and/or crack and crevice treatment. You could also consider going to an insecticide that is not micro-encapsulated, such as Talstar P. If you are removing all the reside, then you would need to reapply the insecticide.

    Q
    Do I have to worry about Demand CS harming nearby small bird families ?
    I want to thoroughly spray the outside of my house about mid August. Small birds tend to fly around my house a lot as they like to nest under my porch.
    A
    When used as directed on the product label, Demand CS is safe to use outdoors in areas where birds frequent. Be sure the birds are out of the area when the Demand is being applied and try to keep the birds away until the area is dry.

    Q
    I'd like to spray my yard with Demand CS for ticks.
    However, we have a TON of (now flowering) clover this year, and the bees are everywhere. I certainly don't want to risk hurting them ! This also brings up another question- are there any other "good" bugs that Demand might kill inside or outside the house besides bees ? Thanks.
    A
    Demand CS is not a selective insecticide and it will kill most insects that contact the treated area. We recommend learning how to create a tick free zone around your yard and only spraying in those areas where ticks are known to inhabit. Make sure the property around your home is unattractive to ticks. Because ticks are sensitive to dry conditions and do not thrive in short vegetation, they are seldom a problem in well-maintained lawns. Keep your grass mowed and keep weeds cut. Clean up items that attract rodents which can carry ticks, such as spilled birdseed, and hiding places like old wood piles. If ticks are present in vegetation along the edge of the property, insecticides labeled for control of ticks can be applied to small areas of high weeds that cannot be mowed. Often, one or two applications per season will be adequate to control ticks in these areas.

    Q
    What is the mix rate for using Demand CS when using the Chapin Wet/Dry Hose End Sprayer for Japanese Beetles?
    When using a Chapin Hose End sprayer connected to a water hose, what should I set the dial at in order to kill Japanese beetles?
    A

    When using Demand CS to treat Japanese Beetles, the mix rates vary depending if you are treating the lawn or ornamentals. Please refer to the product label for application instructions. 

    Lawn Mix Rates: 3.4 - 7ml (0.1 to 0.2 fl oz) per 1,000 square feet / 5-10 fl per acre 

    Ornamental Rates: 0.4 - 1.3ml (1.5 to 5fl oz) used in 25 gallons of water. 

    For spot treatments, use 0.5 fl oz Demand CS Insecticide per 1–2 1/2 gal of water.

    Since water is acting as the carrier, each treatment and the amount of water that will be used is specific to the individual treatment. Please take a moment to review our How to use the Chapin Wet or Dry Hose End Sprayer Video for tips on how to set the dial for this sprayer.

    Q
    Which is best for bed bug control; Suspend SC, Cyonara 9.7 or Demand CS? Which would you use?
    I know they are all good, but which is the most effective (with the least chance of harming to humans)?
    A
    You are right, all of these products work very well. All three products have an active ingredient that is classified as a synthetic pyrethroid, so they really are very similar in the way that they work. Cyonara and Demand CS share the exact same active ingredient at the exact same concentration, so they do the same job. Suspend SC is a bit more versatile when it comes to bedbug treatments, and it can be sprayed on mattresses, carpets (spot treat only) and on furniture (crack and crevice only) where neither the Demand CS or Cyonara can be applied.

    Q
    How do I safely clean up Demand CS that has been sprayed on the floor instead of in cracks/crevices?
    We used Demand CS to control carpet beetles but we incorrectly sprayed the product along the floor, about a foot from the wall, around the entire perimeter of our condo (rather then just using as a crack/crevice treatment). What is the best way to clean our floor to remove the product? We are concerned about our little dog walking on the product.
    A

    Demand CS can be wiped up with hot water and soap. The product is safe for your dog even if over sprayed on the floor after it has completely dried.
